From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Electrify (Japanese: そうでん Electrify) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Helioptile and Heliolisk.
If the target has not yet used a move, Electrify makes the target's move Electric-type for that turn, even if it is a status move. Moves with a charging turn will only change type if the user is affected by Electrify on the turn it does damage. Electrify will not cause Conversion to change its user into the Electric-type if Conversion is the user's first move. Electrify does not affect Struggle.
If the move Flying Press is affected by Electrify, it deals Electric/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry is affected by Electrify, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively does not stack with its Electric typing (a Water-type Pokémon hit by the move will only take ×2 damage); in Inverse Battles, Freeze-Dry affected by Electrify will hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively.
Electrify bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
|| If the target is electrified before it uses a move during that turn, the target's move becomes Electric type.
